Who needs candy...
...when you've got sweeties like these?
Halloween Madness 2006 finally came to an end this evening. When did Halloween become a nearly week-long extravaganza anyway? A carnival at Hannah's school on Friday, the very nice Halloween Walk at the Unitarian Church on Saturday, a parade at school today, trick-or-treating around town, a couple of trips to the local pumpkin patch and corn maze, the end of Daylight Savings Time. The fun never ends!
The kids are getting good use out of the costumes I slaved over with a hot glue gun. Hannah's costume is entirely recycled out of last year's costume. Last year's butterfly (Jonah was a caterpillar) became this year's Flower Fairy. Jonah is Super Dog, a character he made up some time ago. He insisted that I make his cape out of a towel.
And I've got enough candy stored up to fuel me through the first annual NaBloPoMo. That's right! Starting tomorrow, a post every single day.
